Western Skies is a love song to the mythology of West Texas. Not the cowboy and Indian version, but the one that exists only in my mind.

This multi-media collection includes a new album and a book of photography, essays and song lyrics. A spoken word album of the essays set to music along with a set of videos will be released in the fall of 2022.

“Western Skies is a near perfect multi-media balancing act performed by poet, essayist, photographer, singer and songwriter, Darden Smith.” – Rodney Crowell
